    Why KidSport? Financial barriers shouldn’t keep any kid from playing and KidSport is helping to remove those barriers. I am passionate about getting kids playing in sport as I believe that sport teaches us essential life skills - from working with others, to building confidence & resilience, to setting goals and staying committed to achieve them… all while staying active!
